Rats in Quiznos subs?

Where did the Quiznos 'rats' come from? I thought they came from under the restaurant's refrigerator, but then a friend pointed me to the web.

Canadian networks too chicken to run PETA ads.

Peta have - yet again - had one of their ads refused by a network. This time it's not too sexy, nor is it using an impotent Santa Claus, nor are they scaring children at the nutcracker show, in their usual shocktactic style.
This time, they are showing the life of a chicken, and the horrible practice of debeaking them so that they won't hurt themselves or other chickens (it also forces finicky animals like turkeys to eat what we damn well feed them, as their beak is now only a scooper). View the Quicktime commercial here at PETA's page. The Television Bureau of Canada decided the commercial was "just too graphic" and would anger Canadian viewers.

"Its depiction of violence to animals has caused us to reject it," the bureau's president, Jim Patterson, said Tuesday.

Well, that's the point - the violence is so awful Peta suggest you go vegan instead. The chicken debeaking isn't the only shuddering scene, also in the ad, a pig farmer gloats as he smashes what appears to be a concrete block on the head of a downed pig. News from Cnews Canada.
When PETA sticks strictly to their message, using hidden camera and documentary footage, it's more shocking than any shocktactic they can think of. Now that is kind of scary.

iTunes Pepsi bottle caps have bad ink

A big mistake has happened with the Pepsi itunes bottlecaps. Apparantly the ink is not resistant to the sugar water. A massive number of complaints have already reached PepsiCo, as people were not able to read the code. Pepsi admits they made a mistake that causes the print to go blurry, they now offer this website to tell you what to do.
Youngamericas bottlecapform. You'll need to snailmail them your name, complete address, daytime phone number, email address and date of birth.

One wonders if the mistake was on purpose. If you think about How much your personal information is worth, you just gave Pepsi $17.50 in return for a 99-cent iTunes song. A Bargain!

AdVent - horrible lines won!

It's been highly amusing, in a "should I laugh or cry?" kind of way, to read all the warstories entered in the AdVent competition.

And man it was hard to pick a winner from the amusing comments. So many classics! Clients that contradict themselves and dark pools of ignorance like 'black will jump out of register' or 'black loads slower ' or, mama mia, "do we have the rights to the yin-yang symbol?". Many a client/boss needs to be smacked with a clue-by-four. And the winners are ....... (to open the envelope, click on read more...)

How long will RSS be ad-free?

You bleeding edge types know about RSS - it's the way you can grab headlines from your fave site and read them via your RSS reader - rather than going to each individual site. Cool huh? We thought so too, and feed since 2000. Even better, you can grab headlines from your fave site and serve them on your blog. It is certainly not just for geeks anymore.

This won't be virgin ad-territory for long though, not now that the US based Rss-ads.com has appeared. It's even rumored that Lockergnome and Paidcontent.org (who would have guessed it) ads have already begun, if ever so slowly, testing this ad-virgin territory.
